Prior to joining Target Shipping, Weiss worked in financial services, developing customer relations and sharpening his entrepreneurial spirit. He made his shipping debut in 2012, joining Target Shipping as a greenhorn where he learned the complexities of ocean export under the tutelage of his father Tal Weiss, the Founder and CEO of Target Shipping. In the shipping community Tal is often referred to as the King of Africa. Weiss now seeks to follow in his father’s footsteps by expanding on the company’s early successes – creating new product offerings and utilizing various technologies to grow the business. Weiss manages all of Target’s day-to-day operations, interfaces with clients, forges new relationships in foreign markets and constantly searches for the ultimate competitive advantage to offer his loyal client base.
